Hi. I have no idea about hardware but I have the next doubt. I need to change my monitor and I'm thinking about a benq which is able to manage 10 bit (about color or something like that). Well, I have the 980 ti 6 gb and I have no idea about what amount of bit can manage this GPU. In case of this GPU couldnt manage those 10 bit monitor, could that monitor work with that graphic card? Thanks I'm sorry if I'm mixing topics I said, I have no idea about hardware. I don't use the computer for games, just for photography and some animation and graphic design.
I have a ZOTAC GTX 980 Ti and it's a beast - why upgrade to anything? The only faster card is a GTX 1080 or the new VEGA AMD cards. SO - SAVE YOUR CASH AND BUY A USED GTX 980 TI ON EBAY!!!!!!
Correct. [DCI] 2k is a cinema term for 2048×1080. 1440p is incorrectly called 2k, in reality it is just beyond 2.5k (hence, 2560). So yeah, 1080p is much closer to 2k than 1440p. As far as pixels, 1080p is 2 megapixels (2073600). And 1440p is just shy of double that at 3.7mp (3686400).
latest is always better for best optimization of latest games or even upcoming titles , also 2gb + vram which is indeed nowadays for tackling settings , so my vote goes to 1070
2560x1440p is QuadHD or 2k, FullHD 1080p only^^
What? 2K is FULL HD and that (2560x1440p) resolutuion is 3K!
With extreme OC over 2100 MHz watercooling, the 1070 is a bit faster cauz the 980 Ti can't reach such high Clock Rate..1070 in a SLI config is a big improvment
thats not true, 980 ti is better for mining as stated above in the test
The GTX 1070 is the better choice agianst GTX 980 Ti 6gb! Much lower watt consumption and faster bitcoin mining (OC) also in the most newest game more fps also more FPS on 2k (2560x1440p) resolutuion!
You nailed it
If you're looking to buy one of these cards today (1070 or 980ti) go with the cheaper option. 980ti is a little older, and uses more power but its much better for pushing FPS in gaming. The 1070 is newer, has more Vram but its not as fast.
